Meet The Crazy Sloppy Joe Doughnut Invention
What do you get when you fuse a Californian fried chicken king with a global doughnut chain? The answer is the perplexingly named Krispy Kreme Sloppy Joe Burger. Yes this is a mind-bending one, and something which has America's increasingly more health-aware population divided. So is it harmless, or another contribution to the country's very real obesity problem? Let us assess.
While American fast food has been under the international microscope during recent times, there remain many belly-busting creations, one of the latest being the Krispy Kreme Sloppy Joe Burger. The burger/doughnut comprises a classic sloppy joe mix covered in cheese and then put between two glazed doughnut rings. Not the worst thing to have ever been put on a menu, but then again..not the best.
As can be seen in the video below, despite the Krispy Kreme Sloppy Joe Burger having prompted a heated debate, with Americans yet again reflecting on the potentially harmful effects which concepts like this can have, people still seem to like it. But what many are viewing as a potentially nation-sweeping concept appears to be nothing more than a promotional gimmick, with no plans in the pipeline for country-wide distribution.
All health-related matters aside, I am sure this radical hybrid would make a very tasty once-a-year treat. I mean what's not to like? Doughnuts yum, meat yum, cheese yum. With this said however, Kripsy Kreme have yet to make this something which is accessible to all Americans, and something tells me they never will. So apologies, but any sloppy joe/doughnut enthusiasts will have to make a trip to California and visit Chicken Charlie's if they want to experience this crazy creation.
Whilst there is no doubt that regular consumption of food items like this would send the arteries of any heart into a hysterical fit, I doubt that there are not many who would eat something like this even on rare occasions. Conclusion? Publicity stunt targeting America's increasing awareness of food-related health issues. I mean, both companies got their names in this article didn't they? There truly is no such thing as bad publicity.
